Gampen is a street term for a small street area, often a quiet residential street, with a narrow alley.
It has the name of its street from the town of Gamp, which is on the east coast of South Africa, and it is the name for the town itself.
Gamp is the oldest town in South Africa.
In the 1960s, the town was named Gampel in honour of a man who was a great-grandson of King Louis XIV.
The town has been the site of a number of historical events including the Gampala Festival and the KwaZulu-Natal War.
